That this House congratulates Leeds United, its manager Marcelo Bielsa, its players, its owner Andrea Radrizzani and its incredible supporters in Leeds and around the world on winning the Championship in the club's centenary season; believes that this outstanding achievement is a fitting tribute to Norman Hunter, Trevor Cherry and Jack Charlton who sadly passed away this year; notes that Marcelo Bielsa becomes the fourth Leeds United manager, after Arthur Fairclough, Don Revie and Howard Wilkinson, to win the second tier title; believes Marcelo Bielsa can now go on to, like Don Revie and Howard Wilkinson, win the top flight title with Leeds United; welcomes the Don Revie team being granted the Freedom of the City of Leeds in 2019 and believes the same honour would now be appropriate for Howard Wilkinson and Marcelo Bielsa.
